, there was enormous sport for the president and glowing emotionally written response to michelle obama's speech given. at the same time the level of crisis is so profound that i think there was an undercurrent in some settings where there was a sense if this were any other setting and any other presidential figure, we would be outraged by the level of cries we're in. that's the rock and the hard place that african-americans place, the symbolic value political connections and emotional value of the first black president, but the reality that he's either unable or unwillingly to verbally address or substantively confront the race structure inequality. >> i want everybody to understand, of course we're not saying he caused the problems, the income falling the net worth falling or not. let me quote the head of the congressional black caucus: >> is that the ironic problem professor rose, if he were white, we would be pushing him harder to help the african-american community no. >> oh, i think there would be a much greater sense that a white democratic progressive liberal blue dog whichever would be held a

romney's speech. you had michelle obama do the same sort of talking about the democrats, talking about obama as someone who had a childhood that i think a lot of people could relate to. her own childhood as well growing up on the south side of chicago. so i think people looked at that convention and saw themselves in a way they didn't look at the rnc, and there weren't a lot of handles into that convention in the way i think the dnc was able to put on a real tab leau of different stories. it resonated with people. >> i think bnt is able to defend the terrible situation obama had when he walked in the door. it didn't seem like whining when he said it. president obama uses bnt in a new campaign add. let's look at this and see how this is going to register. >> he keeps saying it. >> this prz cannot tell you he's better off today than when he took office. >> here is where we were in 2008. >> worst financial collapse since the great depression. >> american workers were laid off in numbers not seen in three decades. >> here's where we are today, 30 months of private sector job growth creatin

, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye

have the democratic convention. spectacular performances by michelle obama and bill clinton. president obama got less stellar reviews, but still a solid speech. the totality of that message, when you had romney, his goal was to make people like him better. obama was to try to address the sense of disappointment many people have. from these initial numbers, they could fade back, it looks like he's done that. at least a little bit. >> john, both of these polls were done after the jobs report on friday? >> reporter: the gallup poll, melissa, is a seven-day tracking poll. so it had results from s days. only friday and saturday in that poll was after the jobs report. the rasmussen poll is a three-day tracking poll. so it's numbers included sunday, saturday and friday. so, yes, the rasmussen poll included the jobs report numbers. >> that is the one that showed obama in the lead. all right, john. thank you very much for that. appreciate it. >>> teachers in chicago are on strike today in the city's first school shutdown in 25 years. mayor rahm emanuel saying he will push to end the strike quic
